if the fog
comes in on little cat feet
summer comes in
like young girls in white dresses
artist richard emil miller
if i had to dress like that in our heat . . .
comes to mind.
or passing right out
like a panting lizard
on the desert sand !!!
sorry old bean.
and this started off so romantically~like and lovely.
well . . .
and as it were !
to me there is just nothing romantic
my problem is . . .
i don’t perspire and sweat and glow all that much.
therefore i stand a better chance of
i know we all love summer !
i find most of you who
are those of you who live in
moderate to cooler climates.

i actually found myself feeling ashamed
that we were so mild and dry.
is always the key word here.
DRY AS A BONE
i believe they call us.
you go right ahead and enjoy those
wonderful summer days old bean.
the hotter the better for you i say!
and i will languish here
in my air conditioned luxury . . .
quiet indoor days with books
and the BBC
and refreshing cool beverages . . .
maybe a fresh fruit smoothie or two.
and i’ll simply pretend

like in the french country cottage blog
her beautiful table settings under huge shade trees
look so inviting.
i want to don that glorious off the shoulder
sheer white dress
and linger over that fresh fruit smoothie
I DO old bean.
but . . .
instead . . .
i cannot tell a lie.
i simply hibernate here
until the hottest part of this season is over.
and that sometimes lately has been

that always hung in my room.
i have always loved the sea.

these are summer treasures
right along with the

i have my big window open as i’m writing this
and the most heavenly light cool breeze is blowing into the room
here at the little wren house.
